Gibbs Says Good-bye

On Wednesday, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs resigned from his job and will become the president’s outside political adviser. He told journalists that he was going to use the extra time to “step back a little bit, recharge some.” His last day will be in early February. About Gibbs’ departure, Obama said “It's natural for him to want to step back, reflect and retool…- but it doesn't change the important role that Robert will continue to play on our team.”
